Mushroom Cream Soup

 

Mushroom Cream Soup
This is one of my favorite soups, creamy and delicious. Very important to know is that mushrooms protect you against diseases and infections, as they are full of proteins, vitamins and minerals, amino acids, antibiotic and antioxidants and help you lose weight due to their low content in calories.
